This special edition shaving soap is presented in an anthracite-colored aluminum tin with an intricately stamped metallic label in antique brass. The triple-milled hard soap is intended to be used with a shaving brush. In an extremely small and hardly accessible zone in the Italian Alps we found a microclimate similar to the Arctic tundra of Lapland, Siberia and Greenland. From the lichens growing here, we extracted the active ingredients that makes this collection perfect for sensitive skin as they offer a soothing and healing action with freshness and vitality.
For the fragrance of Tundra Artica, we used Agar Wood - a quintessential Oud scent - to convey a feeling of open spaces, freshness and a woody perception of shrubs.
Our artisan shaving soap is worked on a extruding machine and the hand-cut to our 90mm specification and then the SV 1945 crown logo is hammered into the soap as it was done at the beginning of the last century before the advent of printing machines.
'Beta 4.3' formulation is a further step forward in the evolution of our shaving soap in pursuit of enhanced lubrication and protection during the shave and enhanced post-shave skin feel.
Product size: 5.3 oz (150g); 90mm diameter
